Hello everybody. Today I'm sharing with you an exciting bespoke lampshade project I recently worked on with the amazing Lampshade Parade!
Ever since I created a gorgeous orange version of my popular 'Bohemian' design for my wedding I've been in love with it. For the wedding I had quite a lot of fabric printed to create a table runner for our cards & gifts table & I've been wanting to create something lovely with the excess material for ages.
Since building my outdoor studio cabin I knew I wanted to decorate it with unique & statement designs (like the bespoke floor vinyl & the bespoke cupboard handles) & I thought that a large lampshade would be perfect for the space. I was so excited when I found Lampshade Parade as all of their shades are so beautifully crafted & as well as offering their own designs, you also get the option to send them the fabric yourself for a shade to be made up. They even have lots of differently shaped shades available!
When choosing the shade to apply my fabric design to, I knew I wanted quite a large size for the ceiling of my studio & so I decided on the 50cm size. The walls are all white & a blank canvas so I knew this design would really pop! I even briefed Katrina from Lampshade Parade to add a bright yellow pom pom trim. I felt like this really made the lampshade feel like me & it felt so fun & original in it's style.
I'm so impressed with the quality & attention to detail that Lampshade Parade showed & I can't recommend them enough. Katrina was so friendly & was so helpful with figuring out the delivery options.
You can find out more about Lampshade Parade & their services on their website.
You can also follow me on Instagram where I share behind the scenes looks at projects like this & I share daily stories of sneak peeks at what I'm working on.
Below you can see some photography taken by Katrina of the making process as well as some styled shots of the final lampshade design by Kim from Struth Photography. In case you were wondering, this isn't where I intend to hang it! I just thought the colours looked so beautiful with my bird box village in the background!
